> Dear fellow council members,
> While we struggle to adapt to the Blueprint scenario,
> I would like to propose two items:
> A) Council Structure
> As the Board has sought a structure they feel
> "comfortable" with, I feel we should have the same
> right, and I propose:
> 1) Each constituency have three representatives on
> the new council. The workload demands this, and,
> if there is concern over seating capacity, obviously
> attendance is never perfect, a fact even more evident
> in the conference calls. The efficiency of the Names
> Council is not impaired by the number of members,
> but rather by the lack of adequate staff support.
> 2) One of the three reps from each constituency be
> named as delegate to the Nominating Committee,
> (which would not appear to have too much work
> to do)
> 3) The ERC refrain from saddling the council with
> three non-constituency NomCom delegates, as
> it is difficult to see the need for this imposition.
> B) Geographical Diversity:
> Since it appears the ERC/Board have made their
> decision on Board Structure and the creation of
> the NomCom (regardless of what we may have
> proposed), I suggest we test their will to comply
> with geographical diversity, which is mentioned
> in the Blueprint as desirable "where feasible".
> I propose:
> 1) The 8 board members plus the CEO ( 9 in total),
> selected by the Nominating Committee,
> should include a maximum of two members per each
> of the five defined geographical regions.
> 2) The six board members that arrive from the three
> Supporting Organizations should have the stipulation
> that each pair of two be from different regions, e.g.
> the two board members from the Address Council
> should be from two different regions.
> 3) Each constituency should retain the current stipulation
> that the three representatives come from different regions.
> Perhaps this can be discussed today.
